Larry Johnson posted a topic in ChitchatMy wife often complains that I smell like garlic and onion much of the time. It's probably true, since I eat prodigious amounts of allium, but there may be a solution. Raw apple, lettuce, and mint leaves were found to reduce the volatile compounds associated with garlic breath, including diallyl disulfide, allyl mercaptan, allyl methyl disulfide, and allyl methyl sulfide. Here's a link to the Science Daily article describing the study by the Institute of Food Technologists. I guess I'll try eating an apple/lettuce/mint salad with my garlic, and see if my wife complains about the smell less.
Dr. Greger, god bless him, is convincing me of the cancer-fighting benefits of g&o. What would you do if you hated these important vegetables but would like to be in their club? Supplements prob don't work, right so-- ever retrained your taste buds to like stuff you just don't? Also the problem is in my stomach. With garlic and onions I eat them but they seem to sit there inside of me -- stinkily -- for a day or two of uncomfortableness. I even think I may be allergic to them.
